Mile High – Highlighting the Best of Denver Hip Hop by Solomon Words @sologeeohdee @DKakaWayneWatts @SedrickAvenue @djlowkey @FdotLawless

Denver-Header-updated

As an artist, I am proud of my hometown of Denver. Even while living in Brooklyn, I represented to the fullest! There’s more to the Mile High City then just copious amounts of weed *passes blunt* and the Rocky Mountains, we have an elevated music scene as well and it’s going nowhere but up.

Denver is home to some of the most talented artists that I respect and are progressing our hip-hop scene to new levels. In the words of the late great Notorious B.I.G. “The Sky’s the Limit” and these five brothers I have the opportunity to present are on the verge of living beyond the clouds.

That's What the World is Today! #Ferguson #BlackProtestMusic

It’s been 44 years since The Temptations released this record. And yet, it’s still as poignant, passionate, and painful as ever. As we look over the past month, in the wake of the deaths of Eric Garner, John Crawford, Mike Brown, and Ezell Ford, our hearts cry out in deep pain and sorrow. The plight of Black people in this nation, and indeed people of color around the world, is harrowing. At times, it is easy to want to completely throw in the towel and succumb to the dark pressures. But as our forefathers before us, we strive, we move forward.

As we make sense of this world, we at soulhead are committed to nourishing your weary souls with the same protest music that sustained a generation. Stand strong.
